73rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management
Lake Buena Vista (Orlando), FL, August 9 - 13, 2013
Theme: Capitalism in Question
The recent economic and financial crises, austerity, and unemployment, and the emergence of many economic, social, and environmental protest movements around the world have put back on the agenda some big questions about the AOM's vision of "inspiring and enabling a better world": What kind of economic system would this better world be built on? Would it be a capitalist one? If so, what kind of capitalism? If not, what are the alternatives?
